About Our Library
The Elkins Park School Library is the main learning hub of EP, where all students feel welcomed and encouraged to grow and learn. During weekly visits and English Language Arts class sessions, students enjoy selecting new books and collaborating on multimedia projects and presentations. This hands-on environment is a center of learning where Elkins Park School students utilize and develop independent skills as critical readers of fiction and non fiction. Students in Mr. Costello's Genius Hour classes work on project based learning assignments of their own design as well.
